Book News – New Camp Half-Blood Series: The Heroes of Olympus

riordan-medal1The second series by Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, is also about Camp Half-Blood and will be called The Heroes of Olympus. The first book, called The Lost Hero, will come out October 12, 2010.

After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood.. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

Sounds good!

  9. OMG!!! I just finished reading the book the Lost Hero and it was awesome!!!! Actually “awesome” doesn’t even begin to describe the book! I am a big fan of the Percy Jackson series but I feel like the Heroes of Olympus will be much much better! Still my favorite character is Percy, always! The ending of the Lost Hero was unbelieveable! The whole book was amazing! Can’t wait for the next one!!!! :)

  10. oh my gods this is the best book ever. in the new book percy is missing at the end thay figer out tha percy lost hi memrie :D

  11. I am so overflowed with information! I just got done reading the:The Lost Hero.So I found awebsite with this lady that has so much information, like Percy gets a sister so technacly his dad was NOT lieing.Percy meets a whole bunch of girls at the romen camp likes one named:Alaya but then starts to get alot of his memory back,like Jason.speaking of him, he starts to get HIS memory back. Turhs out he has an a girlfriend named, Reyna.Don’t worry about Percy and Annabeth, Percy can NEVER froget that girl. Thats his achilies spot. By the way, Annabeth dies, wait Percy opens The Dors of Death and kicks the person who killed Annabeths but. He does not only free her but, Luke,Beckendorf,Silena and Micheal.In the end of somewhat futer book Carter from The Red Pyrimed comes into the seiries.I guess the demigods take the place of their parent since a lot of the gods die.Like;Athena Annabeth.Juniper makes Grover run for president.(snicker.)

  12. I think the seven are,Piper,Leo,Jason,PercyAnnabeth,Dakota(daughter of Appollo,Roman camp.),then Carter from the cane cronicles.

  13. Giselle: none of that makes sense.

    Percy gets a sister: OK. I can take that.
    Gets his memory back, Jason: he has never met Jason
    Jason has a girlfriend, Reyna: we knew that already
    Annabeth dies: hard to believe, but i’ll take it
    Percy opens the Doors of Death: who’s the other person? “and FOES bear arms to the Doors of Death” -Great Prophecy. also, that’s the last line. what about the other 3 books? it’s a 5 book series…
    Does not free Annabeth, but does other people: again unexplainable. why not?
    Carter comes: Riordan has hinted that there might be a merger…but I do NOT want to see Roman/Greek Gods vs Egyptian gods. whatever though
    Demigods take place of parent b/c gods die (Athena -> Annabeth): gods are immortal. they cannot die. also, didn’t you say Annabeth died?
    Juniper makes Grover run for president: believable
    your prediction for 7: fine.
    Percy and Jason are leaders: we knew that already

    i’m not believing you unless you give us more explanation or your source(s)

  14. i just got done reading The Lost Hero,book 1! i llllllooooooooooovvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeee it! i just can’t wait for The Son of Neptune!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. that was probably one of the best books ive ever read! Rick Riordan is an amazing writer and the Percy Jackson series is still buzzing in my mind since the first time i read it. the Kane Chronicles was awesome too! i love mythology

  16. I say that lost hero is a really good book but i cant pick what is better percy jackson series that i love and always will or the lost hero which is really good. but i have to go with percy… because ive grown up for the last five years reading those books over and over and over again. so that is my opinion but i still say lost hero is awesome

  17. I CANT WAIT FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH RICK RIORDAN WRITE FASTER PLEASE!!!!

  18. i am so happy the lost hero came out i finished reading it yesterday. i read the percy jackson series and so did a boy in my middle school class he noticed me reading and we started to talk about everything then things NOT about the book every day now we are WAY more than friends!:):)
    THANKYOU RICK, AND I ALSO AGREE WITH THE PERSON ABOVE PLEASE WRITE FASTER!!!!!!!!

  19. YES RICK PLEASE WRITE FASTER BUT DONT MAKE PIPER, ANNABETH, LEO, PERCY, GROVER, JASON DIE!

    IT WAS WAY TO SAD WHEN CHARLES BECKENDORF AND
    SELENA DIED I CREID AND NOW I REMEMBER IT SO I AM CRYING AGAIN!:(

  20. i had a dream that i was daughter of aphrodite(piper style)and i met piper and she was my best friend then next i found out my mom was a wizard!
    but then i had to go to hogwarts and not camp half blood!:( that dream sucked!

  21. i just remembered harry potter is coming out in july and i have to wait for the next percy jackson movie and the next heros of olympus book.
    great! more things i gotta wait for

    PLEASE WRITE FASTER!!
    P.S. I LUV YOU RICK!!

  22. i already read the first book im 11 and in love with it but im mad because the 2nd hasnt come out yet!!!!!!!!:@

  23. i read the percy jackson series and the heros of olympus and watched the lightnig theif movie, I AM RUNNING OUT OF THINGS TO DO HERE!

  24. i wathched the movie last feb. and i dont have the movie on disc so i went to youtube and tried to watch it but it wouldnt work because a copywrite! now i have to save my money and buy it from amozon or something, and i am a girl.

  25. OK PEOPLE I HAVE BEEN READING YOUR COMMENTS YEA, I THINK THEIR CRAZY!!! UNTIL I THINK: WHY WOULD RICK MAKE AN EGYPTIAN SERIES? WELL IF CARTER HAS TO BE IN THE GREEK SERIES THEN IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE!!ITS A 2 STEP THING! I WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE! oh yea and alex, i feel for you!

  26. Oh my gosh I looooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeee the percy jackson series and I read the new book The Lost Hero and I absolutly, tottally,100% love it and I just can’t stand it anylonger!!!!!!!!!! I want the next lost hero book 2 come out right now I can’t wait until october because i’m pretty sure i’ll go nutts. P.S. I love rick roidans books though i haven’t read the red pyramid yet. Can’t wait until next lost hero book comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. And i have a theory on who the seven half-bloods in the profecy are Jason, Piper, Leo, Annabeth, Percy, Thalia and Nico. But I read the first book though I just don’t know who the seventh half-blood is. I mean it can’t be grover or gleeson or tyson because their not half-bloods and the profecy clearly says half-bloods shall answer the call to storm or fire the world must fall and foes bear arms to the doors of death. P.S. it’s just my theory on who the seven half-bloods are.

  28. I read The Red Pyramid and I think it was great i also think the lost hero is great am reading it right now. Am not much of a reader but I like Rick Riordan’s books. When I finished Percy Jackson the 5 book I looked on the internet to make sure there wasn’t anymore books sadly but I read warriors and some other books until The Kane Chronicles and The Heroes of Olympus came out.

  29. I love the series and am waiting for the Son of Neptune(Posiden) and can’t wait any longer. I stink at waiting and spelling. Sorry. Had to add that in. Anyway, I just can’t wait for book two to come out. AUGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  30. I LOVE PERCY!!!-
    Is ‘Son of Neptune’ the second in the Heros of Olympus series?
